Images in Posts - The Guidelines

This is to ensure that everyone experiences a smooth display of images regardless of internet connection speed. Please follow these guidelines for the benefit of all.

To place an image in a post
Once you have the url from the web of the location of the image you want to use (either by right-clicking on it and selecting Properties, or by the location in the location bar of your browser), you can 'insert' it into your post by enclosing [img size=320] tags around it like this: [img]http://www.imageurl.com[/img]

The format used should be .jpg preferrably over any other, and definitely NOT .bmp's.

Online hosting of images
If you do not know it by now, many IFAS members are users of flickr ( www.flickr.com ), probably the world's best known free online photo gallery site. You can upload your images there, and add the link(s) from IFAS. Include the tag 'irishastronomy' with your image(s) - the frontpage of this site displays images from flickr with this tag.

Images included in posts should not exceed 800 pixels in any dimension (more importantly, width), and not exceed 200kB in size. Larger images should be hosted off-site, and the link referred to it in the post.

If images larger than 200kB are found
A Moderator will edit the post to display the link to the image instead of the image itself.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Seanie Morris,
